Seven hangouts in Kololo have been dragged to court by five residents in the area over allegedly causing noise pollution.

Mrs Winnie Byanyima, the head of Oxfam International is part of the five complainants.

Some of the bars being sued include Casablanca Bar and Restaurant, Atmosphere Bar and Lounge, H2O Bar and Lounge, Big Mikes bar, Bubbles O’Learys, and Wave Lounge.

A suit filed at the Kampala High Court also reveals complaints that the bars have huge screens and floodlights which reflect so much light in people’s homes on top of emitting too much noise.

The complainants, through Signum Advocates, want the bars to be restrained from hosting music concerts and late night parties which disrupt their peace.

The reported bars, through their representatives, have retaliated to the accusations with defences as they urge the complainants to prove their reports.

The case is set to be ruled upon on February 26th.
